It could be as simple as your door switch but you can google your mod number and maybe youtube has something. that you can watch are you good at taking things apart? do you know how to use a test meter? you will have to know these things first in order to trouble shoot it i was an appliance tech for 38 years so i don't know you experience.

I have a Maytag LSE1000. The dryer and washer each have an issue at the moment. The dryer intermittently won't engage when it is turned in. When you press the "regular" button to start it,...

I really have NO idea what's causing your Maytags to misbehave, BUT I can tell you that the Maytag service centers have always been very accommodating when I've called about problems with dishwashers, dryers, and washing machines.They have explained the construction of the appliance and even told me the type of tools I needed to make repairs! If you still have your owner's manual, the toll free number should be in there. I hope this helps!

Dyrer on comes on when button is press, once you let go it turns off. we have to keep the button pressed in at all times in order for it to work.any ideas???

place a jumper wire , between the 2 wires that attach to the start button, if this fixes the problem replace the switch , leaving it on all the time will burn it out since its a momentary switch , if that doesn't fix the problem, then check the door safety switches, and the control thermostats

When pressing start button it does nothing anymore,any help or suggestions?? it worked up till now..

Check and make sure the door button has not broken and fell out. If you see the button sticking out mash it several time hold it in then mash the button. If it is electronic it's probally in the board.
